Yup, I fully agree with the different parts of one body but all working together and no part is any better than another!
And ya, it’s true that although I’m dropping novel writing, I can still be of help to others, and I believe there are other poets on here that I could share ideas with and such. Granted, my poems aren’t like planned out or anything. They just sort of happen, in the moment. Like previously, if I wanted to write a bit quick before going to bed, I’d pull out a paper and pen and write a quick poem. So I’m not super great at making my poems flow because I don’t put that much effort into them, but I’m sure I could still help with editing and such, since I do read a lot. Reading is definitely my favourite hobby (with maybe the exception of music/singing…)
I totally agree with what you’re saying about poets and musicians and novelists all needing each other. I wasn’t meaning we don’t or that my gifts are any less important. I know that each gift is equal in ‘status’. Thanks for reminding me that I can still be an inspiration to others, though. It’s a great thing to keep in mind throughout life.
